|Stressful job dangerous?
Dec 3, 2001
I'm a 28 year old HIV+ man with undetectable virus and a CD4 count stabilized around 300. I have no side effects and have never been clinically ill. I'm considering joining a major investment bank but the working hours can be quite tough, around 60-90 hours a week and even all-nighters are not uncommon at all. Would I jeopardize my health by taking on such a stressful job?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Not if it's a job that you really want. Succeeding at work is one of life's pleasures, and as long as you make the time to take your HIV meds correctly, I think you'll be fine. Good luck!
